Nelson, Part II: Highlights

Hi everyone! It feels good to be back writing a blog post once again. I've had an incredible summer but I'm excited to be home again and getting back into routine and launching some very exciting things (more news soon). Anyway, I thought I'd begin with sharing the rest of our Nelson photos, (see part I here) and showing you little snippets of our trip. The pictures above are a few of our food snaps. We spent every day devouring freshly picked berries, sipping on ciders and cocktails and enjoying ice creams and cooked breakfasts.

One of the best things about Nelson was how much time we spent outdoors - whether we were visiting the horses, berry picking, going for a walk or checking out pretty sights around the city.

And my absolute favourite part of the trip - beach time!! We swam on Rabbit Island, kayaked across the estuary to Mapua and spent the afternoon jumping off the wharf and we hiked into part of the Abel Tasman National Park and swam in a beautiful secluded lagoon.

If you ever come to New Zealand I definitely recommend checking out Nelson, especially if you like spending time outdoors. We had incredible time and we're already planning our next trip back!


  1. Your pictures are gorgeous!!


  2. I'm heading to Abel Tasman on Friday for a few days - we've gone to Totaranui every summer for a week since I was 10. I love it there!

    Beautiful pictures!

  13. Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you're working with? I'm going to start my own blog in the near future but
    I'm having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    same topics discussed in this article? I'd really love to be a part of online community where I can get feed-back from other experienced individuals that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Cheers!
